Introduction to Qigong

Join us for a FREE 8-week Introduction to Qigong class series, with longtime master instructor Kimberly Ivy, founder of Seattle’s Embrace the Moon Tai Chi and Qigong. Qigong is a contemplative movement system that is one of the main branches of Chinese Medicine, along with Nutrition, Massage, Herbs, and Acupuncture.  

There are many variations of Qigong and you’ve likely come across several versions online and in the parks. No matter the method variety, all Qigong is a health system that helps us to understand Yin/Yang philosophy, meditation, breath, and movement. 

All of these beautiful flows harmonize the body, mind, and spirit with nature and provide many health benefits! You will find that in a short time, you will feel better all around!   

During this series, Kim will share The Muscle Tendon Changing, Bone Marrow Washing Qigong form in the Qigong system. It’s a funny name but an amazing form to stretch the body & get the Qi flowing for Spring. All are welcome, regardless of previous experience!   Classes are Fridays 10:30am to 11:30am, starting January 15, 2021.  

Fridays  10:30 to 11:30am 

Jan 15 – Mar 5

Community Conversations – Ballard [Digital]

Our Community Conversations are LGBTQIA+ safe spaces by and for our community. While others are welcome to participate, our communities’ voices will be prioritized and we hold a judgment-free, safe space for all members.

Participants are free to speak about any topic however we do pre-selected topics each week that serve as great ice breakers.

This is a great way to socialize and find local resources, along with sharing fun things to do that others may not have thought of.


These talks will be in the form of group discussions. Conversations are led by GenPRIDE volunteers and community experts with an emphasis on the impact on our lives. Sponsored by GenPRIDE!

January Topic

Gratitude – Do you have a gratitude journal? Name at least 3 things or people you are most grateful for today. How does gratefulness manifest in your life? Is there a link between gratitude, health and healing? How can we integrate gratitude into the culture of our divided country?

February Topic

Giving – What compels you to give your time, energy and money to a cause? Let’s examine monetary gift giving versus being of service. What gifts and talents do you have to share? What role does volunteering play in your life? How could this be a path to personal fulfillment?

Every Second Thursday of the Month

from 6:30– 8 pm.

Please email cherie@genprideseattle.org to register.
